the fundamentally flawed health care bill. eric cantor had this to say. quote, stop obama care from reducing hours and eliminating jobs. peter roscom of illinois said we continue to see the lost coverage, cost spikes on the strain of the president's health care law. then there's this sugar plum from tom price of georgia who dug up the old refrain that millions of americans are going to see their policies canceled. it seems no matter what the news, it's like what they did with 9/11 and rudy. every sentence needs a predicate of 9/11. whatever you're talking about, it's back to that. >> yeah. i'm surprised they didn't mention benghazi. because that seems to be the only other thing they have to talk about. i mean, they're going to just -- they're going to run out of obama care attacks eventually. because either millions of people will get new benefits, will sign up in the next month, next couple months and this won't be a good path to take outside of the republican presidential primary of 2016. or the law won't work out well in which case they'll have this bonanza, the republicans, politically speakin

it up there, the comments from bill clinton about obama care, when the former president said the current president should honor its commitment to allow people to keep their health care plans. let's play it once more, just for feeling. >> so i personally believe even if it takes a change to the law, the president should honor the commitment the federal government made to those people and let them keep what they've got. >> does this give the secretary of state the cover that she needs from the obama care situation right now? >> well, look, you know, i think that one of the big problems -- i think, look, bill clinton is the best strategist that the democrats have right now so i think he was essentially acknowledging the risks that many democrats face right now, being so closely associated with some of the mistakes of obama care. but in reality, i think that a.b. has a really good point, which is that he is actually going to be somebody who helps drive the wedge between president obama and hillary clinton but i think that van has a good point in the sense that there's really not a whole lot

of why the land of adult children is happening. for example, you have president obama going out and saying k stay on their parents' health insurance until they're 26. last time i checked, we weren't exactly kids or children at the age of 26. many people are homeowners. world war ii was won by people ages 18 to 26. by the time you're 18 you can sign up to fight overseas. by 21 you can drink alcohol. yet all of a sudden we're children able to stay on our parents' health insurance. that is not a good thing. that means we're delaying adulthood and overall a whole generation is now saying i don't know how much things cost. they're not responsible for their actions. >> there are so many young people who are the heart and soul of america doing incredible things in service to this country, in business, in industry, working every day, day in and day out. what is the net effect as we go out this morning of this interest by this administration in making children out of young men and young women? what is the net effect 20 years from now? >> as you mentioned, there are a lot of very young pe

because she lacks a decent education or health care or a community that views her future as their own, that should offend all of us. and it should compel us to action. >> president obama did not introduce any new policies, but he did reiterate his strong support for raising the federal minimum wage, which stands at a paltry $7.25 an hour. >> there are fast food workers and airport workers and retail sales assistants who work their tails off and are still living at or barely above poverty. that's why it's well past the time to raise a minimum wage that in real terms right now is below where it was when harry truman was in office. if you work hard, you should be able to support a family. >> polls consistently show that the economy remains the single biggest concern for americans, and now more than ever the concept of a living wage seems to be gaining ground. adjusted for inflation, today's federal minimum wage is a full $3.50 less than the minimum wage of 1968, which stood at $10.60 an hour. for the past month, senate democrats have been working to pass a measure to raise the minimum wa
